I'm the space science producer for Discovery News, and I have a special love for solar physics, manned spaceflight and investigating the inner workings of our universe. I hold a Ph.D in Solar Physics and an M.Phys in Astrophysics. The exploration of space is an adventure; it's my job to chronicle our journey.
There's something strange going on inside the protoplanetary disk of a nearby star and astronomers are at a loss to explain what it means.
Our universe is actually really simple, it's just our cosmological theories that are getting needlessly complex, argues one of the world's leading theoretical physicists.
Tonight at 7 p.m. ET, The Perimeter Institute will be hosting a special lecture by theoretical physicist Neil Turok, who will explain why, actually, our universe has the simplest geometry of anything we know. Streamed LIVE.
Yes, that's right, there's a hole in the sun, but it's not a sign of anything scary, it's actually a wonderful insight to some pretty 'cool' solar dynamics.
Red dwarf stars may be able to support habitable exoplanets after all -- through complex tidal interactions between star and planet, global magnetic fields could evolve, protecting hypothetical life forms from the red dwarfs' ferocious nature.
It might kill us, but the perchlorate-rich liquid water of Mars could be our best opportunity yet of rooting out the possibility of microbial Martian life.
Move over Pluto, it's time for Charon to step into the limelight.
For the last time until 2033, a 'supermoon' and lunar eclipse coincided, causing our planet to collectively look up in awe.
